As soon as the doors opened Saturday morning at the Best Buy store in Florence, Kentucky, a long line of customers rushed inside to get their hands on this year’s hottest doorbuster deals.
“Woo! Here we go!” a customer shouted.
“I want a TV. Where are the TVs from the ad?” asked another.
It’s a common scene that plays out on Thanksgiving and Black Friday, but this time it was just practice. The shoppers were actually Best Buy employees who had been assigned roles to help one another get ready for the busiest retail sales weekend of the year.
